Where can I find a Pathfinder character sheet that works in Libreoffice spreadsheet (the new Openoffice)?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

With regards to that, I have found:
- Open Office Character Sheet - Several options here, including a sample character and sheets with both calculated statistics and plain, under the Pathfinder™ Character Sheet heading. There are some snags, mentioned in the Miscellaneous section at the bottom of the page.
- Tyranscooter's Open Office Calc Character Sheet - "An Open Office Calc based character sheet intended for use at the gaming table. In addition to the basics, it also tracks the effects and durations of all your favorite buff spells, feats and special abilities."
An important difference between Excel and Calc regarding functions is that the values supplied to a function (which are called arguments in Excel and parameters in Calc) have different separators. Calc always uses semicolons to separate parameters in a function. Excel uses either commas or semicolons, depending on the system (for example commas on English systems, semicolons on German systems). Calc will generate a “#NAME?” error if you use a comma in place of a semi-colon. 6
However, if you use a lot of Excel macros and programming, then you're going to struggle with Calc. The reason is that Calc has its own macro language and it's not always compatible with Excel's VBA format. This means if you're trying to switch over to Calc from Excel, you may need to redo a lot of your macros. 7
